Sepang Aircraft Engineering (SAE), a fully-owned subsidiary of Airbus, has opened a “smart” workshop for the repair of aircraft nose radomes – Malaysia’s first such facility. The Smart Radome Workshopincludes three inspection rooms, a sanding room, two dedicated paint spray booths, a clean room and a paint curing and repair oven. It has also increased efficiency by extensively using digital and smart technologies, harnessing the data produced by aircraft, and maximising automation. This includes process digitalisation, advanced non-destructive testing (NDT) for composite structures and the automation of labour-intensive tasks such as paint removal and paint application. The Smart Radome Workshop is an initiative of the Aerospace Malaysia Innovation Centre (AMIC), of which Airbus is a founding partner. SAE specialises in the maintenance, repair and overhaul of commercial aircraft, engines, and components. It provides dedicated support for the growing Airbus A320 Family fleets in the Asia-Pacific, as well as the region’s ATR turboprop aircraft.
